why mitt romney lost the 2012 election and why barack obama won it. it does it with incredible insight from people high up in the romney campaign. and very high up, i should add in the romney family. something we haven't seen before. it concludes that the cam pin, made a remarkable series of costly financial strategic and political mistakes in retrospect all but assured the candidate's defeat. bring up on the screen a couple of quotes from tag romney, remark quotes. he says, "he wanted to be president less than anyone i met in my life. he had no desire to run." another quote, "if he could have found someone else to take his place he would have been ecstatic to step aside. he is a private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them but he has deep faith in god and he loves his country but he doesn't love the attention." let's bring in the panel now. steve hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." nina easton, from "fortune" magazine. and charles krauthammer. sindcated columnist. nina, start with you. your husband was on the romney team. >> my interpretation is mitt ro
, is not who is popular and who is not, he's won his last election. that doesn't matter anymore. what obama does care about and should care about is his legacy. if you go over the cliff he may get a bump temporarily and the republicans will take a hit but his legacy will be his second term. and if he wrecks the economy, as he would, by not being able to remedy the consequences of going over the cliff, then he's going to have a failed second term and a failed history -- history will remember him as a failed president. now, what he probably thinks, if he can go over the cliff, the republicans will take a hit, he will have public opinion behind him and then he can undo the damage one issue at a time by getting a reduction by a return of the majority of the bush tax rates, standing unemployment, whatever else he wants to do he can get that one piece of legislation at a time so that he won't suffer the consequence of a second recession of 9% unemployment. so i think that's his calculation. but i do think that he's putting a lot in jeopardy. if we go over the cliff, it's going to be a very shaky
the country wants to go. it's a verdict that goes out to the people who got re-elected. careful, buddy, careful, lady, you could be next. isn't there a sense in the republican party that obama won a comfortable re-election? >> yeah but -- >> yeah but. >> that was boehner's mistake. >> he thought that was reality. >> he thought that was reality, and he learned the other night that it wasn't. >> republicans don't see it in that world. what covers the sky in their world? >> it's not blue. >> fiscal red. >> it's not blue, that's for sure. when he realized he couldn't round up the votes, he had to recognize that they did not respond to the election the way that other rational factions have responded to elections over the past decades or centuries even. >> what do we make, glen, of this captain queeg we have, scared of his own crew, scared of weather conditions, worried about what's going on and still has to be captain? >> i mean, the simple reality is he's the speaker of the house, but each one of those people runs in their individual district, and these tea party members in particular, the

. if you look at sentiment among democrats especially further to the left since the election their feeling has been president obama won and we will not take this out of seniors and we will not take this out of medicare or social security. no cuts in those things. that position has hardened i think on the left in the past couple of months. >> chris: kirsten, i know you are a believer, i have been watching you this week, that obama won and really cleaned the republicans' clock on the whole thing because he ends up getting the tax rate increases that he wanted. on the other hand, you do have another debt line coming in in about two months according to timothy geithner and that is the increase in the debt ceiling. the republicans hold most of the leverage because they can at least threat ton send the country into default unless there are serious and major spending cuts. at that point does this obama victory perhaps look a little different? >> the question is are they going to want to do what they did last time with the debt ceiling which ultimately caused us to have a downgrade of our economy.
at -- among democrats, especially, further to the left, since the election, their feeling has been, president obama won, we will not take this out of seniors, we will not take it out of medicare, we will not take it out of social security. no cuts, and those things and that position has hardened, i think on the left in the past couple of mo couple of months. >> chris: you are a believer, kirsten, that obama won and, gets the tax rate increases. on the other hand, you do have another deadline coming in about two months, according to timothy geithner and that is the increase in the debt ceiling and at that point, it would seem to me the republicans hold most of the leverage, because they can at least threaten to send the country into default unless there are serious and main spending cuts. at that point does this obama victory perhaps look a little different? >> well, i mean, i think the question is, are they really going to want to do what they did last time with the debt ceiling, which ultimately caused us to have a downgrade of our economy. do they want to do that again? i think it is a bit
will be elected speaker. the republicans won't be primary #-d. the media will declare obama the winner and the only person getting hurt is the middle class that allegedly obama supports which is a bunch of baloney. that s go is going to happen. >> i will throw this to joe trippi. the people that will really be hurt are the children and grand children that we are stealing from. we are robbing these kids blind. we are taking their inheritance away. and i have a question for you, for joe trippi. why is this president so obsessed, obsessed with taxing small business that will fund the government eight and a half days and not dealing with the trillion dollars deficits? can you explain that? >> that is not what s going to happen here, sean and you know it. >> sean: wait a minute. they are not dealing with spending, joe. he is not protesters posing any serious cuts. >> if you go to $400,000 or higher on the level which the tax rates go up that is going to hit very small group of small business people what we would call small business people. >> sean: joe, 8 and a half days. that is not the is

. philosophical. >> laura: the reality, though, anthony is that they lost the election in november. so the taxes are going go up. i mean the idea that -- taxes going to go up on obama care and a bunch of other taxes kick in and cost of living going up. the pragmatic rehe action would be in an a perfect world there would be no tax increases. going to happen one way or another. your point is he should stick to principle and go over the cliff. >> that is why he got elected by his body and in his district. we kept the house. the taxing authority. we have the constitutional authority and duty to go in there and tax and spend and create that budget. also we beat up obama and rightly so for the lack of transparency in the obama care debate and we are having four people negotiate the budget. put it back into paul ryan's hands and let's lead. >> i heard paul ryan's name mentioned. of course, his office, don't look at us. we support boehner. but look, if there was some revolt, if this thing is real and people will start mentioning ryan and it builds and builds and builds, i mean would he be somebody who s

members. they put their money where their mouth is, but in the last election cycle they didn't do well at all. they profiled certain senators for defeat and with the exception of one they all lost. they said that barack obama who has really been to call him cautious would be almost kind really silent on the issue. they said he would be a disaster. they lost with him. so i think that their political muscle has been very much diminished and whether it's been diminished or not people now who were formerly pro nra and were fearful of them are now ready to change their positions and vote against them. >> i want to move on and talk about the fiscal cliff. speaker john boehner certainly taking a huge hit last week with his plan b proposal, didn't even get off the ground with his own party. where does this leave things now? >> in some ways boehner was prophetic and said only gods knows. so mark plotkin doesn't know, but i really think it will be a much smaller version. in the end they'll come up with something and it will probably be some break-away republicans, if there are any in the house,
